Veterans breakfast Nov. 14 at the Carnegie Science Center


Veterans, including World War II service members, will attend a special event at Carnegie Science Center from 8:30 – 11 a.m. on Nov. 14, the Saturday after Veterans Day. Carnegie Science Center is co-hosting the event with the Veterans Breakfast Club.

The morning begins with coffee and a screening of D-Day: Normandy 1944 in the Rangos Omnimax Theater. Narrated by Tom Brokaw, this film gives a moving account of the keen military strategy and outstanding cooperation of the Allied Forces.

A breakfast of sausage and eggs follows the movie. Todd DePastino, executive director of the Veterans Breakfast Club, will moderate as veterans of World War II and other conflicts discuss how the movie relates to their experiences.

The cost is $15 per person and includes movie, breakfast, and admission to the Science Center for the rest of the day. Parking is free for event attendees.

All are welcome to attend; it is not necessary to be a veteran or a member of the Veterans Breakfast Club to take advantage of this opportunity to explore the history of World War II and hear from people who have served in our nation’s armed forces.

D-Day: Normandy 1944, narrated by Tom Brokaw, tells the story of June 6, 1944 – the largest Allied operation of World War II in Normandy, France. It explains in detail why and how this region became the most important location in the world during the end of 1943 through August 1944. The film explains D-Day and the Battle of Normandy through five chapters, including the importance of the operation, how it was carried out, and its legacy.
